A recent change in the software landscape involves the introduction of the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). FOSS offers freedom to access and enhance software source code at low or free cost, thereby demonstrating high potential to enhance the impact of ICT in the society. However, the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) and some other higher education institutions in South Africa are yet to embrace and derive the benefits of the FOSS change phenomena. It thus seems like being unable to make sense of the FOSS phenomenon and generally in need some framework or perspective to deal with the change to FOSS.
